The rising cost of health insurance, the need for greater productivity at work and the costs in both time and money of illness in the workplace are driving a growing trend: Small business owners are trying to get their employees to live healthier lifestyles. While being overweight, smoking and being inactive are all obvious causes of poor health, one factor that’s attracting more and more attention is the sheer number of hours most people spend sitting each day.

Hi Maria,

Yes, maintaining a healthy work environment is important and it doesn't mean what it once did. Work at many firms now involves sitting in front of a computer screen for much of the day. Circulation issues, eye strain and lack of exercise are just some of the problems faced even by those working from home. It requires a whole different way of thinking about health and safety in the work place. Thanks for sharing this post with the BizSugar community.
